Abstract

The life-support system described provides on-site emergency medical care for a designated group of people. It consists of a fixed subunit, a back-up emergency department; a temporary subunit, a life support station, and a mobile subunit, an ambulance and mobile medical personnel. A proposal for a life-support system for indoor conventions is presented with specifications of personnel, communications, supplies, registrant education and life-support team function. Results, critique, and discussion of a life-support station at the 1974 Annual ACEP/EDNA Scientific Assembly are presented.
